Fried Plantains are a common side for any Costa Rican dish, adding a little natural sweetness to your meal.
Cut into 1.5 inch pieces (appx. 3 to 4 per plantain)
Preheat the olive oil over high heat. Once hot lower temperature to medium low. Add plantain pieces.
Move plantain pieces continually so that all sides are completely browned. This will take about 7-10 minutes. Remove plantain and set to dry on paper towels. Enjoy as a side with black beans and rice.
